Actor Sung Hoon’s remarkable transformation for his television drama role is attracting attention.

The third teaser for SBS’ Faith showed a nearly unrecognizable Sung Hoon with his long white hair and blowing on a daegeum, a traditional Korean instrument made of bamboo.

Sung Hoon’s character in the drama, Chun Eum Ja, is a deadly assassin who uses his daegeum and sound waves to assassinate individuals.

Going to great lengths for his role, Sung Hoon not only shed 5kg for his drama role but even received daegeum lessons from a professional.

Sung Hoon dished on his character saying, “Chun Eum Ja is an individual who holds more interest in animals than people and has no interest in people while feeling no repulsion towards death. He’s a mysterious and merit-filled character who doesn’t display his emotions and his feelings inside.”

Faith, which also stars Lee Min Ho and Kim Hee Sun, will premiere on August 13.
